Hi all, This is related to this thread, https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/how-to-raise-a-good-rooster.1302317 on how to keep a rooster from becoming aggressive. Some people thought that breed had nothing to do with aggressiveness, some thought it did. I have heard that RIR roosters are more aggressive than most, and after researching my breed of rooster (Dominique) for aggressiveness I found this sentence from Wikipedia disconcerting: "Dominique roosters can sometimes be even more aggressive than the Rhode Island Red and have been known to kill small cats, snakes, and even mink." As well as this, "Dominique roosters can be highly aggressive" from another site. Does breed really have anything to do with aggressiveness (and also, those of you who have owned Dominique roosters, please share your experiences!) I don't need any more info on how to deal with aggressiveness, or how to prevent it. This question is just out of curiosity.
